Ethiopian Film, Finding Sally

To Screen at DIFF – 10 – 20 September
August and September will be a period for Ethiopian filmmaker, Tamara Mariam Dawit, who has the African premiere of her documentary Finding Sally, at the Durban International Film Festival (10-20 September)
Finding Sally is a haunting film that unravels a secret held by her aunts, that leads her through the tortured recent history of an ancient country. Director Tamara Mariam Dawit knew she had an unusual collection of aunts in Ethiopia, her estranged father’s sisters and another sister about whom she knew virtually nothing. She would discover that Selamawit – known as Sally – had been a 23-year-old member of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Party. She’d gone from being a vivacious, social and politically engaged student to a fugitive on the Ethiopian government’s most-wanted list. Finding Sally is Dawit’s uncovering of a generation of horror, fuelled by her own family’s history of survival mode.
The film will be screened (FREE)at Durban International Film Festival – booking is essential: September 10 to 20, 2020. Booking link:
